We replaced the ugly vanity with a new pedestal sink. This bathroom is so small and putting in a pedestal sink actually gives the illusion of having more room.
We stripped the wall paper and painted the walls a pale lavender. I'm not much of a purple fan, but the tub is still green and I thought the lavender would look nice with green. I added a few pictures of ferns to also tie in the green.
Notice I said I'm not a fan of purple, yet I have a purple shirt on that day! We pulled out the old medicine cabinet and purchased a large mirror to hide the gaping hole. The silver ties in nicely with the silver fixtures too. We also purchased a new towel holder and a toilet paper holder that match.
I put the other fern picture over the toilet. I love the bright white with the lavender...it looks so clean and cool.
I purchased some green, lavender and white towels to go with the new decor and I use the old burgundy ones for dog washing. The total cost was under $300. I'm so glad the 1970's have left the room!
